Naslund sits / Salo out

Leave it to Alain Vigneault to speak his mind. When asked why Markus Naslund was not playing on the PP as much last night Vigneault said:
"He wasn't playing well, it's as simple as that. I just go with the guys that are playing their best. He wasn't one of them."
Zing! Nothing like calling out your captain! But I admire that about Vigneault. And letting your best players play more is something that was sorely lacking under the Crawford regime.

Sammi Salo apparently tweaked his groin last night. I thought he was ill, because he sure looked pale when the camera showed a closer view of his face last night. Apparently the flu is going around the Nuck room because Lukas Krajicek is suffering from it as well. Sure didn't hurt his game did it?? So Salo will not make the trip to Edmonton, and as a result, Alex Edler has been called up from Manitoba.
